The First Movement Considered In Isolation

The second track in this clip, beginning at 7.21, is a live version of the first movement of "Electronic Sonata For Souls Loved By Nature" (Part 1). The parts emerging from every instrument differ to various degrees from the original studio version, and there are no pre-recorded supporting parts in the background. There are also new parts for an electric guitar in this version, including a couple of lead parts and a part to mirror the bass-line.

I didn't like the "chaotic" second, third and fifth movements to the original studio version (though I did like the fourth movement), and so it's good to have a version of the first movement alone isolated from the overall composition and from the cosmetic effects of all the pre-recorded make-up.
